I'm somewhat resistant to change also.
I am loving the new platform! This has changed the game for me!Barrion2018 wrote: ↑January 16th, 2023, 6:55 amI'm somewhat resistant to change also.
I do have a new FB account. The only reason I do, is because I needed one to follow some of Frank's live pod cast.
I'm going to miss this form. But in-away, I'm excited for the new one as well.
Nope it doesnt in my browser

Nope, it is taking me here when I click on the sign up link
Sorry to hear that this site is an endless string of work without a much payoff, especially with all of the bad actors that seem to be popping up\

and Sorry for this question if redundant, but I read it all and it was long, and I may have lost it in the read..
So, Is some of the content here getting archived somehow in the new smokrbuilderU site?
or will it be inaccessible to most if not all old forum members of the that started here??
Again, appreciate all of the work, but I cant blame you dor shutting this thing down with all that you mentioned above.
It sounds like an endless time pit for the moderators (you and yours) without much a return on investment.
Here is what I will miss:
If there were only a way to search up for instance " reverse flow smokers" as an example and then all of the members that posted their RF smoker builds popped up and then we could check those out..
Or offset smokers,
or centerfeed reverse flow smokers etc..
Any way to put them on a "tree" or "menu" that makes it easier to find them?
O do they just fall off of the new SmokerbuilderU site after a while.
maybe a tutorial of how to find certain kinds of builds would be helpful on the new site if that is even possible.
For instance, I once needed to build a collapsible shelf for a buddy and found a few on this site via the "search function" and it was helpful..
New members seem to all ask about the same questions that were covered a few months before.
I could search up the same question from a pior member, copy and paste the URL at the top of the page into a comment and that made it much easier to help others, which I believe many of uss here liked to do.
I think that is what I will miss most about the site.
The interaction there (to me anyways) is not the same because its functions and usefulness (because of the lack of ability to find and use other builds) is not the same.
the new site seems more of a hangout for a few and not really what this site was.
Hope some of this makes sense
But it is why I found this this site useful and enjoyable, and that site format/ functionality not as useful
If there was a way that I and maybe others could do the above mentioned stuff it would be good
And if it does do all of the things that I mentioned above, maybe someone could put a one time welcome tutorial together at the new site so that we could get it..
this is just tinsparks 2 cents, ok may that was 3 cents haha!! and yesssss. I have had 2 beers! lol!!
Appreciate U fellas!!
